Parts Finishing Group has one stand alone honing company called MICHIGAN HONE AND DRILL (MHD) located in Madison Heights, Michigan. MHD has been in business over 30 years. In the last 15 years, MHD has built up a full service deep hole drilling/gun drilling service to compliment the honing service.
MHD currently has over 30 hones in operation. These hones include vertical hones, horizontal hones and multi-spindle single pass hones. This bank of equipment enables MHD to respond to virtually any honing requirement up to 15" in diameter and 9 foot lengths.
Michigan Hone & Drill has so much honing capacity in place that it is capable of honing 25,000 gears per day on an emergency basis for large producers of transmissions. The company is also capable of honing large quantities of engines, drums and connecting rods on an emergency or permanent basis.
Michigan Hone's business is derived from production, prototype and short run parts. We can hone all types of surfaces: metallic, non-metallic, hard and soft, big and small. Honing applications include gears, connecting rods, engines, cylinders and other heat treated parts.
In addition to honing, the company has a fine bank of deep hole/gun drilling equipment. Michigan Hone and Drill can be totally responsible for the hole geometry and stock removal since we both drill and hone.
